Important Characters: Dory

I want to start a series for Disney characters that I think are particularly important and why. These characters  will range from main characters to minor characters. It’ll be a fun mini sort of project, that’ll be interesting to research and entertaining to write. It’ll also be yet another excuse to watch Disney films!

To start with, I thought I’d take a closer look at Finding Nemo‘s Dory. Both films contain some perspective on animal rights, especially the sequel, so she’s clearly involved in some particularly important films anyway! And her being there just adds to the importance of them.

Dory’s an incredible character, hilarious and so sweet. Within the first and second movie, Dory is always there for Marlin and Nemo, and never gives up on them. Even when she and Marlin has an argument, she still sticks by his side, is loyal to him, and still wants to help him out. While she may be scared, she keeps her courage to help and go out of her way.

Whilst on her adventures, Dory makes friends easily and trusts others. Marlin learns to put his faith in others because of her. He learns it the tough way, but better late than never! Because they trusted others and made new friends, they succeeded in ‘finding Nemo.’ And in the sequel, they found each other and *spoiler* they find Dory’s parents.

Dory is also an amazing character who has a mental illness. Nevertheless, her illness doesn’t hold her back. While it’s difficult for her to cope, she always pulls through. She’s so inspirational that even Nemo thinks, ‘what would Dory do?’ and teaches Marlin to do the same. Watching the movies, you can see that Dory tells us that it’s okay to have a mental illness, and that it doesn’t have to hold you back.

Lastly, Dory is voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, who is gay and is a feminist. Personally, I think she’s one of the best celebrities out there! Her and Dory are quite similar, personality wise.

As you can see, Dory is extremely important. And, actually, quite underrated. She represents some marginalized groups and is inspiring, funny, sweet and loyal. Plus, fishes are cute; so that’s a bonus! I’m sure I’ve left some valid points out, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less important.

Why do you love Dory?


Have a magical day!

2018 Reading Goals

Each year, I try to set myself specific goals when it comes to reading. These goals can be from how many books I’d like to read, to specific books I want to read. It’s fun to do and actually help keep myself organised, since I have so many books to read for university. While I don’t always read every book that I specifically planned on reading, it’s nice to at least try, and to have a list in my mind of what to read.

Before I ramble on anymore, let’s get down to it! The amount of books I want to read is 23 (you can follow me on GoodReads here!). I know it’s not an awful lot, but with my university workload, it can sometimes be hard to find time to read. Plus, if I end up reading more than 23 books, I’ll feel proud!

The books I’d like to read this year are mainly books that are on my university reading list for next year. However, this time I’ve been quite lucky, and a lot of these books are ones that I’ve been wanting to read anyway, although not all of them are on this list (lol);

  1. Dracula – Bram Stoker. This one is on one of my university modules next year, but is something I’ve wanted to read for a while but never got around to. It’s a gothic classic, so right down my street.
  2. Great Expectations – Charles Dickens. Another book for university; but this one is what I was meant to read this year, but just haven’t yet. Oops… I will read it, though! But I wanted to read this anyway as well, I love Charles Dickens, I think he’s amazing.
  3. A Court of Thorns and Roses – Sarah J. Maas. A couple of my friends recommended this book to me, and one let me borrow it. It sounds amazing and something slightly different for me. I’m very excited to read it!
  4. Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon. I saw this in cinema last year, and thought the movie was pretty good, but slightly cliché. I heard so many good things about the book though, so I’m willing to give it a go!
  5. It – Stephen King. I LOVE Stephen King!!! The movie adaptions of this were absolutely incredible, and I cannot wait to read the book! I purposely left it until I finish my assignments this school year, though, just so I can concentrate on it more.
  6. The Wasp Factory – Iain Banks. My English teacher in secondary school recommended this book and I’ve wanted to read it since. Ironically, it’s on one of my university modules next year. Perfect! It’s a horror and a classic, so it should be pretty good.
  7. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson. Another book for university. But I’ve heard so many great things that I’m looking forward to reading it anyway. I helped one of my friends with a couple of extract questions before, when she was studying it at GCSE, so hopefully that’ll come to more use.
  8. Romeo and Juliet – William Shakespeare. I LOVE Shakespeare! And call me a typical girly-girl, but this is my favourite Shakespeare play. I don’t care! I think it’s beautiful. And yes, I also love the movie adaption with Leonardo DiCaprio – it’s a clever adaption.
  9. I Am Malala – Malala Yousafzai. This is such an inspiring story and seems as though it will be thought provoking. Truly putting your life in to perspective. I plan on reading more biographies/autobiographies, so this will be a good book to read.
  10. Paul O’Grady’s Country Life. Paul O’Grady is adorable! When I saw this book in Tesco, I had to get it. The photo’s were stunning, there’s some pretty good recipes which I’m sure will be easy to turn vegan, as well as an interesting story.
  11. Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson. A friend recommended this book to me, and I had a copy for Christmas, so I simply must read it now. It sounds like a good read.
  12. Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie. I saw the movie adaption for my birthday (partly because Johnny Depp was in it) and loved it. The story was so well thought-out, and the ending was unexpected. The book must be just as good, if not, better!
  13. Beauty and the Beast – Disney. Obviously, I have to have something Disney on the list! Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favourite films so this should be a good, quick read.
  14. Selected Poems – Robert Browning. I’m starting to enjoy poetry more and would like to start reading more of it. Browning’s poems are very interesting, so his poems as well as a couple of other poets’ are definitely on my list.

So, there you go, the main books I’d like to read this year! Are there any on the list that you’ve read? If so, what did you think of it/them? And what do you plan on reading this year?

Have a magical day!

20 Reflections At Age 20…

I haven’t posted on here that much lately, so sorry about that! But on to my post;

In December, I turned 20. It caused me to reflect quite a lot, because of the realization that I officially wasn’t a teenager anymore (even though I’ll always still claim to be a teenager, anyway). I felt old, even though I’m not, but then realized, I’ve already done so much with my life.

So here are my twenty pieces of advice/reflections. Hopefully I’ll be able to offer some good words of wisdom in my old age ;).

  1. Do what you love. There’s no point in doing something if it’s not going to make you happy. Sometimes you have to put yourself first.
  2. Don’t worry about what people think about you. Unless you’re actually victimising and offending someone, then why should you be that conscious with what you do?
  3. Some friends don’t last forever. I’m one of the lucky ones that still has their friends from their childhood, as well as new ones. But not everyone will be that lucky. And who knows what the future hold.
  4. Be yourself and love yourself – I’m still working on the ‘love yourself’ part, but still!
  5. Respect nature and animals. They do a surprising amount for our world, so we should do our best to give something back to them.
  6. Stand up for what you believe in. It can be tough, but it’ll allow you to feel empowered and you’ll help encourage others if they believe the same thing that you do.
  7. People will let you down, but don’t let it get you down. They may not always do it on purpose; sometimes promises can be hard to keep, etc. But don’t take things to heart.
  8. You can’t make people like you. 
  9. Don’t give up, mistakes are inevitable. But try anyway.
  10. Apologise and accept apologies. It can be tough, but holding grudges can be tougher.
  11. Smile! It’ll brighten your day and everyone else’s.
  12. Treat others the way you want to be treated/”if you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.” – Thumper. I’m pretty sure this was probably drummed into everybody’s head whilst growing up, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true.
  13. “We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other.” – An Inspector Calls.
  14. Exercise and be healthy to help yourself and the world. A treat can be nice every now and then, but not all the time.
  15. Judging does not equal caring. 
  16. “Have courage and be kind.” – Cinderella.
  17. Pink is the best colour. Obviously; even Sharpay Evans and Audrey Hepburn agree! La vie en rose 🙂
  18. If you want to do something, do it. You can’t let others rule your life (unless it’s illegal).
  19. Do things for others. Spread happiness. This is one of my New Years Resolutions, and I started off by donating blood and 19cm of my hair. Easy pops!
  20. Take a risk, try something new. “Go, live your dream.” – Hook Hand Thug.

I hope this came of some use! I’ll try and post more often, I have some new ideas and books I’d like to write a review.

You can now find me on Pinterest: modernrapunzel 🙂

Favourite Books I Read In 2017

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and will have an even better new year. It’s been over a month since my last post, but Christmas is a buy time of year – but hopefully I’ll post more this year! Anyway, on with this post!

I read 27 books last year, which, for me, is quite a lot, but this year I would like to read more. Fingers crossed I can do it. Here are my favourite books that I read last year, in the order I read them;


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – J. K. Rowling.

I’m 99.9% sure I don’t need to say what this is about. But, even though I love the movies, I have never read the books, so I was so happy that I finally began reading it. I enjoyed every bit of it, and only wish I read the series sooner.

Rating: 5/5.

Stardust – Neil Gaiman

You can read my review for this novel here. While I enjoyed this, I have to admit, I slightly prefer the movie, which I don’t say often. I think it was maybe because of the ending.

Rating: 5/5.

Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck

This is the story about two workers, George and Lennie, who start work on a ranch. They have worked on other ranches previously, but trouble always follows them.

This is probably best known as a GCSE book, mainly because of the ending. But this was actually one of the few books I enjoyed reading for school. I’ve read it twice since studying it, and it never gets old. There’ll be a review on this soon!

Rating: 5/5

Milk and Honey – Rupi Kaur

A quick and insightful read, this book of poetry and prose is about life. Each chapter contains poetry and short stories on different stages of life, which most people would be able to find relatable in different ways. There are drawings on almost every page which are so beautifully drawn in a somewhat different way. You can read my thoughts on this book here and here.

Rating: 5/5.

The Vegetarian Tigers of Paradise – Crystal Jeans

The Vegetarian Tigers of Paradise is a delightful, humorous and serious collection of stories of Crystal’s life. The stories are something that we can relate to; they are nostalgic and show real struggles.

I was recommended to read this for one of my University modules, and I’m so glad I did. It’s so entertaining and I can’t wait to read more of her books.

Rating: 5/5.

Quidditch Through The Ages – J. K. Rowling

One of the books that Harry Potter read for his first year at Hogwarts, this is truly educational. It was a quick, fun read.

Rating: 5/5.

Shakespeare’s Sonnets

I am obsessed with Shakespeare (not at all a cliché of an English student). So reading this was quite interesting and fun. It was nice yet quite sad to see how he changed his poetry as he aged. Obviously, I will be writing about Shakespeare in future.

Rating: 5/5.

The Extraordinary Adventures of Sherlock Holmes –  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has a fun way of writing and really brings his characters to life. This book was really interesting and gets your mind working.

Rating: 5/5.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – J. K. Rowling

It’s Harry Potter – of course a bookworm and Harry Potter nerd will enjoy it! It’s a fun, quick, enjoyable read. I just need to read the rest now :O.

Rating: 5/5.

Araby (Dubliners) – James Joyce

I had to read this short story for one of my University modules and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It’s part of a collection of “Dubliners,” so I will definitely read the rest of them!

Rating: 4/5.

The Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore

Obviously read on the night of Christmas Eve, this delightful and nostalgic poem is definitely going to become a tradition for me to read. Everyone should read this on the night of Christmas Eve at least. It’s fun and shows you the true meaning and joy of Christmas.

Rating: 5/5.

Disney Christmas Playlist!

Who doesn’t love Christmas? And adding Disney sparkle to that Christmas magic just makes it even better! Here are some of my favourite Disney Christmas songs:

large (1)
image via Disney

The Christmas Song – Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas

A traditional, sweet, and catchy song. I love singing along to this because it just adds to much magic without even trying too hard.

Make Me Look Good – Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas

This just shows family in such a funny way but somewhat real way. Sure, your family can sometimes embarrass you, but that’s what families do.

image via Disney

What’s This? – The Nightmare Before Christmas

Of course, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a bit of Nightmare Before Christmas action. And in this song, Jack literally says (or sings) almost everything there is about Christmas.

Making Christmas – The Nightmare Before Christmas

This song is literally about making Christmas – or, at least, what they thought Christmas was!

As Long as there’s Christmas – Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

This song is so meaningful and beautiful. It’s such a brilliant song! The reprise of this is just as amazing, too.

Stories – Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

Yes, this isn’t exactly about Christmas. But it is about a gift Belle is giving the Beast, and it’s such a beautiful song about books. So as a bookworm, how could I not include this?!

Let it go – Frozen/Demi Lovato

This isn’t exactly about Christmas either, but I always feel quite Christmassy because it has that sort of vibe. Plus, I watched it in cinema for my birthday which is pretty close to Christmas, so I still associate Frozen with that memory anyway.

image via Disney

Do You Want to Build a Snowman? – Frozen/Disney Channel Cast

This also counts as a Christmas song, right?

It Feels Like Christmas – The Muppets Christmas Carol

I still actually haven’t seen this film, but I plan to this year! It’s a pretty cute and catchy song, though.

Let it Snow – Liv and Maddie

I love her voice and I feel like she sings this song very well. And the whole scene is just so Christmassy!

Up on the Housetop – Liv and Maddie

This song reminds me of my childhood (big Jackson 5 and former Barney fan here lol) so I had to add this one too. It’s a cute, festive, innocent song. You can’t help but sing along with it. And then have it stuck in your head for years after.

image via Billboard

Last Christmas/Santa Tell Me – Ariana Grande

Queen Ariana Grande sang these in the Disneyland Christmas Parade 2014, so I had to add these too. She did such a great job, and if you haven’t already watched her perform these songs at that event, you need to!


It’s Not Christmas Without You – Victorious

This isn’t a Disney song, but it’s Nickelodeon so I guess it sort of counts? This song is just so amazing and I actually still enjoy watching the Christmas episode of Victorious, as well as many others.

The Christmas Song – Nickelodeon

Again, it’s not Disney, it’s Nickelodeon, but it’s more or less the same thing, and it’s so festive!!

What are your favourite Disney Christmas songs?

Christmas Must Reads

Christmas is in just 26 days! It’s probably the best time of year. The family comes together, the food is great, the music and movies are just beautifully cheesy, the books and poems are wonderful, and the sales are extremely satisfying. You can’t go wrong with Christmas! And reading festive books is a great way to get in the spirit. Before I keep rambling on, here are some festive books which I think you should definitely read!

image via

A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens

This may very well be the most iconic Christmas novel ever, and one of Charles Dickens’ most celebrated works. Since its publication, ‘God bless us. Everyone!’ has been a popular and well-used phrase. It’s beautifully written, exciting and reminds you of the true meaning of friendship, family and Christmas.

image via

The Night Before Christmas – Clement C. Moore

I haven’t actually read this myself yet, but I’m planning to on Christmas Eve (just to be ironic). This is another classic Christmas read though. From what I’ve heard, it’s well-written, beautiful, festive and magic. It’s a poem, so it’ll be quite a quick read, so there’s no excuse as to why you can’t read it!

Christmas Cookbooks

Christmas recipe books are a great way to get creative in the kitchen. It’ll add a little more ‘oomph’ and jazz to your Christmas, by baking something you haven’t baked before. And any recipe book will do, so you could even get one for free on your Kindle! Me? Well, I love baking so I’m going to try to find time to bake some Christmas tree brownies!


Make A Christmas Wish – Julia Williams

This festive novel is a witty, festive piece about a woman who got knocked down in a supermarket car park and died. She’s sort of ‘floating around’ and so needs to make things right with her husband and son, so that she can move on. It’s different, funny, festive and just a little sad.

image via Amazon

Let it Snow – John Green, Lauren Myracle, Maureen Johnson

This book contains three short stories, by the three different authors, which connect to each other. They are funny, relatable, romantic and, sometimes, unpredictable.

image via Amazon

Frozen: Book of the Film – Sarah Nathan

This isn’t exactly all about Christmas and festivity, but I feel like it counts. And either way, it’s an enjoyable read – plus it’s Disney!


I know there are so many more, but these are just the ones I read (apart from The Night Before Christmas). What are you going to be reading this Christmas?


Have a magical day!

Inspirational Disney quotes

Are you having a day when you just feel awful and need a ‘pick-me-up’? Well, look no further. Here are some Disney quotes which could give you the motivation and inspiration that you’re looking for. What can I say, except ‘you’re welcome?’

“Don’t just fly; soar” – Timothy Mouse, Dumbo

Do the best you can!


“Giving up is for rookies” – Philocetes, Hercules

Dreams aren’t for rookies, giving up is. Keep trying; don’t give up!


“Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become” – Mufasa, The Lion King

You’re awesome, give yourself more credit.


“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and snap! The jobs a game” – Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins

Maybe finding the fun in something would give you that bit of motivation you needed? Stay positive.


“The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all” – The Emporer, Mulan

Something/someone who grows up in hardship can still end up being a rockstar.


“Even miracles take a little time” – Fairy Godmother, Cinderella

Things don’t happen overnight. Be patient.


“Go. Live your dream” – Hook Hand Thug, Tangled

Pretty self-explanatory; but be brave and achieve it.


“Remember you’re the one who can fill the world with sunshine” – Snow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

See the world, not as it is, but how it could be.


“Shake things up! Use that big head of yours to think your way out. Look for a new angle!” – Tadashi, Big Hero 6

If something isn’t working, try it a different way. Can’t finish the essay? Try a different question. Ask for help. Think about the question in a different.


“Life’s not a spectator sport. If watchin’ is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go without ya” – Laverne, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Involve yourself with people; don’t keep yourself in doing work all the time. Have some fun as well as working hard.


“I may not be a doctor, but I know there’s no better cure for a sour face than a couple of boards and some choice waves” – David, Lilo and Stitch

Take a break once in a while.


“Sometimes the world seems against you, the journey may leave a scar. But scars can heal and reveal just where you are” – Moana’s Grandmother, Moana

Pick yourself back up, get out there, and achieve your dreams! You’ll overcome the bad times.


“But you remember Tiana, that old star can only take you part of the way. You got to help it along with some hard work of your own” – Tiana’s father, The Princess and the Frog

You can’t wait for things to happen, you have to put effort into whatever it is.


“I never look back, darling, it distracts me from the now” – Edna, The Incredibles

Keep looking forward; cheer up, child, it’ll turn out alright in the end, you’ll see.


“The very thing that held you down is going to carry you up and up and up” – Timothy Mouse, Dumbo

Try to use the negatives as motivation.


“Go. Live you dream” – Hook Hand Thug, Tangled

Exactly what he said ;D. (Unless it’s illegal, of course).


“The past can hurt. But they way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it” – Rafiki, The Lion King

Don’t be bitter about the past. Try and move on, and look forward.


“Have courage and be kind” – Cinderella, Cinderella (2015)

It has more power than you know.


I hope you enjoyed this post!

Disney Halloween Costume Ideas (for girls)

Halloween is just over a week away, which means it’s time to go out partying, trick-or-treating, preparing a movie marathon – whatever you enjoy doing on Halloween. But, I think pretty much everyone enjoys dressing up for Halloween. It’s so fun and you can go all out there, without anyone judging you. So, let’s begin!


Minnie Mouse

This iconic mouse is too cute and her outfit is pretty easy to DIY (or buy) with pretty simple makeup!


Evil and classy, this villain would be super fun to dress up as.

The Princesses

Want to be like Cinderella and party until midnight? Now’s your chance; dress up as her! You and your squad could dress up as any princess of your choice. To be even more unique, you could even ‘zombify’ them. Watch my favourite ‘dead princess’ YouTube tutorials by one of my favourite YouTubers here!

Cruella De Vil

Because what’s scarier than someone who wants to kill animals?

image via Tumblr

The Fairies

If you want to look super cute, I’d suggest dressing up as Tinkerbell or her friends! The wings and unique colours will look amazing.

Elizabeth Swan

Elizabeth Swan is sassy and fierce; her ‘boyish’ look is also relaxing, so not only will you have a good time being dressed up as her, you’ll also be comfortable.

Jessica Rabbit

If you’re going to a party and want a more classy, sexy look, Jessica Rabbit is the one. Not only will her outfit be fairly easy to copy, but you’d also be looking fine.

You can watch a tutorial by one of my favourite YouTubers here!

The Sanderson Sisters

Going out with your squad? Try to persuade them to dress up as the Sanderson sisters with you! The costumes will go perfect together, and you’ll also have a lot of funny comebacks already prepared for the night (thanks to the movie).

Bonus: Wednesday Addams!

If you don’t particularly want to dress up as a Disney character, but want to have a simple yet fun costume at the same time, Wednesday Addams is the one! Morticia Addams would even be a great idea too!

One of my favourite YouTubers also did a Wednesday Addams look, you can watch it here!


What are you dressing up as? I might be either Wednesday Addams or one of the Princesses!


Have a magical day!

Confessions of a Disney Freak

Taking a break from the Halloween posts, here’s a bit of a fun, personal post.

As you all probably know by now, I love Disney. Why else would I have this blog? Disney is just the best thing ever! Like lots of other people, I’m proud of being such a huge fan of Disney. Being obsessed with Disney, I do still have some confessions!

But, really quickly, I have just got my own Pinterest account, so feel free to follow me! I have boards on Disney, vintage, girly things, the Titanic, Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp and cute wedding photos etc.

I haven’t seen any of the Cars or Plans films.

Yep. I haven’t seen a single one. When I was younger, I watched the first five minutes or so of Cars and I didn’t really get in to it, neither did my mam or sister, so we turned it off. And decided to not give the other films a chance. Maybe I should give them another chance now, but I probably won’t!

I’ve only been to Disneyland Paris and Disneyworld Florida.

I’ve been to Disneyland Paris a few times and Disneyworld Florida once. I know that’s a lot compared to some people, so I’m not being ungrateful. But I would love to go to the Disney park in Hong Kong! It looks beautiful.


I hope to spend at least one Halloween, Christmas and/or maybe New Years in a Disney resort.

The decorations! The joy! The festivity! It all looks SO exciting and fun and beautiful. I need to spend at least one holiday there – everyone does!

If I were to work in a Disney park, I would love to be Rapunzel, Tinkerbell, Aurora, Fawn or Cinderella.

Everyone has a character/role they’d love to be at a Disney park, or any other park. Mine would be the princesses or fairies. Yep, I’m a very generic girl!

I didn’t always like Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland.

I KNOW, I DON’T KNOW WHY! The first time I watched it, it just didn’t work for me. But then like the next day, I re-watched it for some reason and fell in love with it. I guess first impressions aren’t always right…

If it’s related to Disney in some way, I’ll buy it.

Call me a hoarder, but if I see anything Disney or at least related to Disney in some way, if I like it, I’ll buy it. I’m just preparing for my future home!


Thanks for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed it! What are your Disney confessions?

Have a magical day!

Halloween Must-Watch Movies (Part 2 – Scary Edition!)

Welcome to part two of Halloween Must-Watch Movies (you can read part one here )!This part will feature scarier movies, so is probably more suitable for adults.
